I. Cartulae Ludi : Maps, Territories, and Space in Neomedieval Universes
This session will explore concepts of space ? especially through mapping or marking of territory, in the construction of neomedieval universes. Neomedievalist texts, whether in the form of novels, films, television productions, musical drama, or video games, play with concepts of territory ? geographical and conceptual?often employing complex mapping or tacking techniques, or creating alternative, non-real ?spaces? for their characters to inhabit. Papers examining any aspect of mapping, cartography, spatial analysis, or geography in neomedieval texts are encouraged.

Explorations of pedagogical, historical and literary implications of playing an a neomedievalist universe. We will consider proposals for games and how to lead this workshop.
Please submit proposals for the conference by September 15, 2006. All proposals sent, both before and after this deadline will be considered for MEMO's second, forthcoming book anthology.
